“Good break for the stressed tourist”
Reviewed October 11, 2013

Came to this hotel via a recommendation by a hotel manager in Udaipur, and it was a great choice! Good location downtown. A beautifully restored haveli. Especially the lobby and inner court are impressive.
Also the service is impeccable. Very professionally managed place.
I very much enjoyed my stay in Bundi, a welcome break from the more touristy places I had been to before. Had I had more time, I would have loved to stay one or two nights more in this place.

Stayed October 2013, traveled solo

Had this place been in a major tourist attraction, it would have cost as much as a 5 star. Hidden away in Bundi, it is a surprise to find such an amazing place there. No need for many comments, if you want to go to Bundi, a lesser know hidden tourist place, this is the place to be. And even on a budget.

When we turned the corner towards Dev Niwas in the backstreets of Bundi I must say I was beginning to have second thoughts.However, when you enter the hotel gates it is just like a Palace hidden away! All of the rooms surround a beautiful central courtyard and the room we stayed in was just beautiful,it was spacious,had a lovely bathroom (although watch your head on the way in!) and although the bed was a bit hard it was more than an adequate size. The location of the Hotel is perfect,just far enough away to avoid the passing traffic and the sound of the motorbikes but close enough to walk into the town to visit the blizzars and shops. The piece de resistance was the rooftop restaurant!, I can truley say that during our 3 week tour of Rajasthan this resteraunt was probably the best. It's Indian food was excellent and when I requested just pasta with olive oil ( as a break from spices) the chef was only to pleased to meet my needs! The prices were excellent value and we could have a meal,drink and dessert for about 900 INR for two people - the equivalent of nine pounds! The staff were extremely friendly especially the gentleman who served us dinner everyday,he really was a true professional. The young men who worked in the a Hotel were always friendly and smiling and the Hotel manager was really helpful and seemed like a nice guy.All in all it was one of our favourite stays in Rajastan and I would definitely reccomend it!

Room Tip: All rooms are slightly different, ask for a choice of two if possible for personal preference.

Last Saturday we just packed our bags and hit the roads and decided to go to Bundi. We had spoken to another hotel however after over 5 hours of driving when reached, we did not like what we saw and then on checking TA Mobile app saw Dev Niwas. Since it was already 6 in the evening we thought of taking a chance and checking out Dev Niwas and what a wise decision that was.

We checked into the deluxe category Room and took Room no. 9 and it was a really nice and spacious. There was a nice little alcove to sit and the bed and a dressing area and a big bathroom. Bundi is a very small rural town and this hotel is heritage yet has some essential modern amenities like the Air con & Hot water etc.

The greatest part is the view from Dev Niwas rooftop dining area and terrace. You can see the gorgeous fort and the quaint town in all its glory. The food is to die for and the service amazing. Thumbs up to Dev Niwas for making it a grrt weekend for us!!

very well run and well positioned in the heart of Bundi, the roof top eating is great with a wonderful view of the fort, our room was really pleasant and comfortable and travelling alone as a mother with two daughters we felt very safe and well cared for, would definitely go back, Bundi itself is a very unique experience

we arrived to bundi from udaipur where we stayed at the trident for about the same room rate as dev niwas. considering it was low season, the place does not offer good value for money: functional rooms but nothing special, no tv (even thought it should have been provided as per the booking on booking.com), not particularly clean and simple/uninspiring food. the positives are location and view from the terrace.

A restored haveli in the heart of Bundi old city, the rooms are all very well set out and the AC is a totaly necessity in the hot season! Staff was down to skeleton as it was the offseason but they were all so very friendly and helpful. A few different rooms to choose from, family sizes, singles and large doubles. Every room has it own individual charm, bathrooms are clean and fresh and the restaurant serves some of the best food in Bundi
